Opioid epidemic has many NKY officers carrying Narcan for K9s

Many officers now carry Narcan in case they come into contact with fentanyl.

And that has happened to officers across the country.
But what about the danger fentanyl poses to police dogs, the ones actually sniffing out the drugs?

“It’s 40 to 50 times more dangerous than the heroin for us, which is even more so for him because he weighs so much less than we do,” said Ludlow police Lt. Bart Beck.
